We are pleased to announce the first exhibition of "paper company", a book label that has been publishing art books since October 2020. The "paper company" has published a total of 12 titles, including exhibition catalogs, photo books, and art books. In this exhibition, in addition to the published books, documents such as drafts and samples of bundles will be displayed along with the works. This approach makes it possible to present the actual relationship between the book and the artwork, rather than viewing the form of publication as the final output of an image. Through this exhibition, we hope to provide an opportunity to work with artists and designers to update the future of publishing and the significance of art books.
